Cryptography at home

This toolkit provides articles that use modest equipment that most people have at home when they use a computer and the Internet. When done well, strong crypto is an achievable goal!

  • How to generate truly random bits using a radio station connected to a sound card, it is straightforward to generate cryptographically acceptable random sequences. But beware of the fine print -- generating good random numbers does require some attention to details!


The following list provides essays, usually with a bit of code to make the demonstration sparkle. Opinions may occasionally be present  ;-)
